FIT is provided by a consortium of five institutions of higher education and research that are devoted to making testbeds for network computer communications available to enterprise, scientific researchers, and educators.
Université Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC), Inria, Université de Strasbourg, Institut Mines Télécom and CNRS have been building wireless, sensing and mobility testbeds, the interfaces that allow the testbeds to operate in a federation, and the tools that make it easy for users to access the testbeds.
FIT is one of 52 winning projects from the first wave of the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research’s “Équipements d’Excellence” (Equipex) research grant programme. Coordinated by Professor Serge Fdida of UPMC Sorbonne Universités and running over a nine-year period, the project will benefit from a 5.8 million euro grant from the French government.
OneLab offers easy access to a variety of network communications environments: ad-hoc wireless networks with mobility and sensing capabilities; wireless broadband access and core networks; a global, public, fixed-line Internet; and both wireless and fixed-line emulated environments.
OneLab is a consortium consisting of five different higher education and research institutions. These institutions are devoted to making testbeds used for network computer communications available to enterprises, scientific researchers, and educators. Université Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC), Inria, iMinds, TU Berlin, and the University of Thessaly have been putting in place the building blocks since 2006: the testbeds themselves; the interfaces allowing testbeds to operate in a federation; and the tools necessary to provide users easy access to the testbeds. These efforts culminated in 2014 with the creation of the OneLab consortium, led by UPMC.
